Canadian street gangs will mess you up.
Once upon a time, a black bear walked into the Breeze Inn in Seward, Alaska ... but was encouraged to leave.
I drove up to Alaska twice, and if you happen to go at the right time of the year you can see a lot of bears in both Canada and Alaska, or at least you could before the roads were paved. Most of the bears just watch you drive by, but this one was not a happy camper.
To fish in Alaska, you have to really want it.
A few days ago a bear walked into a liquor store in Juneau, Alaska. On the video it seems to be looking for a candy bar.
Yesterday a bear cub was seen wandering around Boulder, Colorado, with the police following shortly behind him (or her).
A small black bear got its head stuck in a coffee can and wandered around the roads in Tok, Alaska for a while before the Fish & Game people were able to rescue it. The video looks really sad, but the story has a happy ending. Here’s the story at adn.com.
A few days ago the plan was to euthanize the black bears roaming around the Government Hill neighborhood in Anchorage, Alaska, but Governor Bill Walker called the Fish & Game Department to see if something else could be done, and now the bears are going to be relocated to an area about 60 miles southeast to an area known as Portage Valley. The full story is here at adn.com.
This is one of more than 100 bears I encountered on a trip through British Columbia, Canada, on the way to Alaska. I’m thinking about heading back up there at the end of September this year to see if I can find a few more.
This is one of the first black bears I saw in Canada on my drive to Alaska in May, 2007. By the time the trip ended, I had seen over 100 bears, both black and brown.
